OCC, mixed paper and LDPE 98/2 all saw price rises last week


The market for recycled commodities was relatively quiet last week with only three grades seeing any price changes.

In the paper sector, demand for OCC remained strong pushing up the price by a further £2 per tonne, while mixed paper also increased by the same margin.


LDPE 98/2 was up by a further £5 per tonne on the back of slightly improved demand from Europe in particular.

Metals were stable after price rises in previous weeks.
